Title

Colonel Sanders with Jewish Hospital Employees, April 1979
"Say Chicken, Not Cheese"

Description

Image and caption from the Jewish Hospital periodical Micro Scoop featuring Colonel Sanders posing with nurses from Jewish Hospital. The Kentucky Fried Chicken founder was 90 years old when he died at Jewish Hospital in December 1980.
The caption reads "With this cheerful admonition, Colonel Harland Sanders completed his short stay at Jewish Hospital. The Colonel was kind enough to stop by the desk on 7 Tower and have his picture taken with (L-R) Nellie Merrit, L.P.N., Terri Ollier, R.N., Becky Brown, W.S., and Kathy Eskridge, R.N.A. The Colonel has assured us he'll see us for future checkups; 'I plan to live out this century!'"
